Jesse and the gang have escaped their imprisonment into the dangerous underground world known as The Underneath, thanks to the standoffish, cold-hearted Xara. And lo and behold, sheís got a past. Not only was she an Admin, she was once good friends with Romeo, the petty, homicidal tyrant this season has treated as its Big Bad from the end of Episode 1 Ė Hero in Residence
. Turns out, she, Romeo, and a hero named Fred were renowned adventurers, until a dispute ended with Fred murdered and Romeo decisively off the deep end. Xaraís bitterness is comprehensive, but itís second to her vengefulness. She wants to see Romeo brought down, and she believes Fred knew how to do it.
So this brings our adventurers to a town where Fred is basically worshipped. Since very few characters in these games are reasonable people, the gang has to take part in a series of truly asinine challenges in order to get the answers they seek. And the way itís all resolved is in classic Telltale fashion: you wander a fixed playspace, observing and interacting with the environment and the people who call it home. Itís definitely filler, but itís not entirely charmless. The problem is the lack of urgency, considering the fact that we know the Admin is already in Beacontown pretending to be Jesse.
